She was intrigue dressed in denim with a whisper of leather. The delicate strength in her voice confirmed she wore lace underneath. A loveliness more than mere surface trimming. Beauty created from diamonds and wisteria petals found deep in her soul. You dare not gaze directly at her, it would be like staring into the Sun. Yes, there was a double edged darkness in her Aura surrounding the elegance of allure. Like the fluff of feathers disguising the perilous talons of an Owl. A vision containing a piece of every woman I’ve ever loved and every woman I would never know. The “B” string on a guitar I couldn’t quite twist into perfect pitch.
She was “Intrigue in Denim”.
